Life Updates and Another New Sewing Machine

 Well well, it's been another 9 months since my last post. Oops. I really don't do it on purpose I swear, I've been super busy making bags and getting inventory for my local pop up shop where my makes are for sale. It's been a fun experience and I'm hoping once the Holiday season really kicks into gear my sales will pick up as well.

    As I mentioned in the title, I did get a new machine! A Juki DU1181N to be exact. It's an industrial and I love her, her name is Layla. The only thing she can't sew is unlined cotton and I have another machine for that. The Janome HD5000 is fantastic and I love that machine but when it came to thick seams it still was a struggle and I was tired of manhandling the machine to get it to do what I wanted. This new one sews through anything I throw at it. 

    My online presence has been spotty lately I am trying to post more on social media but life gets in the way and it doesn't always work out. At the end of the summer my husband and I were in a bad car wreck, physically we both could be better. My husband especially is still in a lot of pain from the accident and we are both seeing specialists. So as you can imagine things have been different in our house lately. We got another dog in August of 2022 and we love her very much. She's a Havanese and her name is Jasmine. She's fresh and doesn't like to go on the paper and she is also destructive, as just tonight I pulled one of my daughter's no longer lost airpods out of her mouth and it was in 3 pieces. Love her, but my goodness, she's a menace. We also no longer have any babies in the house, our youngest turned TEN and there's something about when your youngest is into double digits. We also have an almost 14 year old, and I just turned 40. So, yeah. 

Jasmine, the Trouble Maker

    BUT I am loving sewing, I am loving the creativity of the community, it's very special and not as competitive as some other crafts. I wanted to give that quick update and as always I will try to not go so long between posts. Here are some photos of some bags I have made.
